call jim crow. would anyone comment on that? >> thank you, mr. johnson. i -- your comments raised a couple of points. one is the issue of collateral consequences. it relates to what we were discussing and what mr. bachus alluded to. the impact of collateral consequences particularly on those who were convicted of lower level nonviolent drug offenses is just tremendous, and there's a project underway right now, under the auspices of the department of justice, being conducted by the mesh -- american bar association, to essentially catalogue all of the consequences and so policymakers and lawmakers can understand the implications of the criminalization they engage in when they make these criminal laws. >> gentleman's time is expired. last but not least the gentleman from new york, mr. jeffreys. >> thank you, mr. chair, and thank the witnesses for their very thoughtful testimony. it seems that as it relates to the problem of overcriminallization that this task force is encountering, there are potentially three areas of exploration as it relates to the problem we seek to address. you h

to the gentleman from ohio, our friend and colleague on the house ways and means committee, jim renacci. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from ohio is recognized for two minutes. mr. renacci: mr. speaker, i rise today in strong support of h.r. 4118, the simple fairness act. according to a recent gallup poll, 51% of americans disapprove of the president's health care law and for good reason. the rollout of the failed misguided law was nothing short of disast russ. it's played whips by preventing many americans from purchasing health insurance from the federal and state exchanges. through the president's -- though the president promised lower costs, many are facing the reality of higher premiums and a steep penalty if they cannot afford the plans that are offered. recently, the administration delayed the employer mandate for a second time, leaving intact the mandate that requires individuals to purchase health insurance or pay a fine. the bill before us today would ensure that no american would be forced to pay the individual mandate penalty tax in 2014. it is evident to this chambe
. ,ost: jim in new york democratic caller. a greatthere is publication that i doubt anyone from cnbc would think about reading. they are getting very interesting statistics in california. they say in california during growing season they use over 60 million gallons of water. also, they say by growing plants, it sucks up as much electricity as 29 refrigerators. they also talk about damage is being done to the environment by the way it is being grown in california. i agree that california might get around this, but it is doing a lot of damage to the environment the way it is being done in california. as it turns out, i did see that piece. the legalizers would say that is why this needs to be legalized. you go out into the wilderness in california, yes, they are using tremendous amounts of pesticides, herbicides and who knows what. the environmental this action is quite phenomenal. this is marijuana growth outside the law. the legalizers would say that is one more reason to bring it under a state jurisdiction, because that way the environmental benefits even to legalizing marijuana. pi
there in virginia. and rightfully so because i can share a personal story, mr. speaker, from a senator, jim davis, from my home state who was a county commissioner and now a state senator. mr. meadows: i asked him why do you have such a hard time balancing the budget here in the state? and he gave me two words -- unfunded mandates. and why is that? because we continue to pass regulation after regulation after regulation, send them down to the states, ask the states to deal with them, the states say, well, we don't have money to implement this, they send it even further to the county government, so what happens? property taxes go up at the local level. state income taxes go up there. all because we believe that we know what is best here in washington, d.c., on how to implement rules and regulations. mr. speaker, i would suggest that during the first term of the obama administration we saw a 10% increase in regulatory budgets. now, that's a 10% increase in regulatory budgets when the average american hardworking taxpayer saw their budgets go down. there's something wrong with this, mr. speaker, and
-americans and they were having a great deal of variety. but it was really emblematic of racial segregation and jim crow and economic injustice and it had come boiling over the top. so it wasn't a people have gotten too much access, but that they had too little and it becomes a result of that. and so when we think about terms like burn baby burn and all these are prices that could be used as this, that becomes part of the debate and the idea of the new right in modern-day conservatism because it becomes a symbol of what people are saying as part of this and liberalism just haven't gone far not. so the activists are an example of the language of the unheard and very interesting in terms of this depending on your viewpoint. it really gives us a perspective of what you think of the 60s and the aspirations for american societies. as an example of excess or people were so oppressed and had so much social misery that the only way that they could respond a century of this kind of segregation and brutalities with that kind of violence. >> host: a reminder that you can send us a tweet apple tv or send us a quest
